The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall visited the Fitzwilliam Museum and the University of Cambridge on Tuesday 29 November to mark the Fitzwilliam’s bicentenary and to celebrate the 600th anniversary of the Cambridge University Library.
November's Object of the Month is the Military Cross awarded to Lieutenant Arthur Dudley Hill. Dr Adrian Popescu, Keeper of Coins and Medals explains the story behind the medal, which was awarded to Lieutenant Hill for his part in the WWI Battle of Loos in 1915.
For October's Object of the Month we are cheating slightly, in that it’s not one object, but many. We walk through the Fitzwilliam’s extensive collection of print albums and find out why they are so special and unique to the world.
